More Coloring...Happy Mother's Day

Today, I have another card that I made using my new Prismacolor pencils + Gamsol...yesterday's cards were pure coloring.  Gamsol is a solvent that helps blend colors, but used for today's card just to help move the white through all the stamped flower's detail (the white is somewhat subtle for me, but I thought, definitely says daisy)...
I used a light gray colored paper that I die cut with stitched square and rectangle dies and an out-of-the-box technique I learned on Splitcoaststampers from THIS tutorial to give a bit more dimension to my daisy.  My mom LOVES daisies and this Simon Says Stamp sentiment went PERFECTLY with the daisy!!  I am having SO MUCH FUN coloring:)!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  2. This is stunning! I was under the impression that one could only use gamsol on "smooth" cardstock. Was I wrong? Or is this cardstock smooth?
